[Suggestion] Support WireGuard

Freewheeling spot to chew the fat on anything cryptostorm-related that doesn't fit elsewhere (i.e. support, howto, &c.). Criticism & praise & brainstorming & requests for explanation... this is where it goes when it's hot & ready for action! :-)

[Suggestion] Support WireGuard

WireGuard is a next generation VPN that is experimenting with post-quantum crypto. Mullvad already rolled it out and it's working great. Please consider supporting!

I know that staff are already looking at it, especially in relation to how its public key authentication fits within the Cryptostorm model.

Going by Mullvad's blog, it's still in the testing phase. Have you any personal experience of it? What's the performance like?

I have used it. The performance is really good, moderately better than OpenVPN in that if you have a dynamic IP (e.g. roaming through open wifi or mobile) it reconnects much quicker - no SIGHUPs.

It's also been confirmed working the [linux-libre](https://www.fsfla.org/ikiwiki/selibre/linux-libre/) and the [unofficial-grsec](https://github.com/minipli/linux-unoffi ... c/releases) patches. If you role your own architecture that's a big security plus.

We do have a test wireguard instance up on a Romanian server, but it's unlikely that we'll provide public access to it anytime soon.

Main reason being, as the wireguard website puts it, "WireGuard is not yet complete. You should not rely on this code."
